4H supporters improve Mansfield Park ag barn
Special to the Courier
Several 4H rifle club dads went to work bright and early Sunday morning to make some improvements to the ag barn at Mansfield Park by installing a steel and plywood safety backstop.
County Commissioner Andy Wilkerson, who oversees Mansfield Park operations for the county, including the ag barn, joined in to lend a hand.
Welding was done by Joedy Musick , a professional welder, with Bill Alexander, Joe Cielencki, and Shooting Coach Mike Towers joining in.
Towers said, "Everything we do in the rifle club is about safety. This will make our practice range a safer place to shoot. This community service project also helps demonstrate to our kids the meaning of being a responsible shooter and citizen."
Perhaps best of all, several thousand dollars of labor and materials were donated by San Antonio sheet metal shop, H&H Metals, and local lumber yard, Hevenor Lumber, so this entire project was accomplished at zero cost to the tax payer or to 4H.
